New BBL and Skintyte II machine

BBL or broadband light
provides a unique platform for a broad range of aesthetic procedures and non-invasive skin tightening all in one system. It treats acne, pigmented lesion such as freckles and age spots, vascular lesions such as telangiectasia and rosacea and hair removal.

The BBL enables treatment of multiple skin conditions with various wavelengths seamlessly using change-on-the-fly Smart filter. It employs an integrated thermoelectric monitoring assembly enabling its patented sapphire crystal and sensors which continuously and precisely maintain temperatures from 0 to 30 degrees Celsius.

Regular use of the BBL helps to correct damaged skin (photo rejuvenation), maintain healthy skin and slow skin ageing. Scientific evidence has demonstrated that regular maintenance treatments using Forever Young BBL functionally rejuvenates and delays skin ageing.

The 2 studies below review the data:

First study to demonstrate BBL treatments can restore gene expression pattern of aged human skin to resemble young skin:

Results: Over 1,000 gene expressions became “rejuvenated” to be more like youthful skin resulting in decreased elastosis and more uniform collagen deposition; leading to improvements in fine wrinkles and pigmentation.

Chang A, Bitter P, et al. (2012) Journal of Investigative Dermatology advance online publication 30 August 2012;doi:10.1038/jid.2012.287

Second study: Retrospective evaluation of Long–term Anti-aging Effects of Broadband Light Therapy

Results: Patients who maintain a regular regimen of BBL treatments annually can reduce and delay the long-term signs of skin aging in a way that looks very natural.

The benefits of BBL treatment are that it is a relatively safe procedure for the overall improvement of skin tone and texture, improvement of pigmentation and reduction of fine blood vessel appearance. There is hardly any downtime with minimal side effects. Treatment can take from 15-30 minutes and the results can be seen about 1-2 weeks after the procedure. For best results, maintenance treatment once every 3-4 weeks is advised.

Skin tightening

The Sciton STAR treatment offers a non-invasive combined approach to skin tightening and rejuvenation. It uses the BBL broadband light with the Skin Tyte Infrared technology to effectively treat skin conditions associated with aging and sun damage. The SkinTyte infrared technology deeply heats the dermal (skin) collagen promoting partial breakdown and contraction of collagen. This promotes the body’s natural healing process and creates renewed collagen foundation leading to tighter skin and overall a more youthful appearance. This is an effective and gentle procedure with no downtime and the procedure can be performed in 15-30 minutes. A series of 3-5 treatments, spaced about 4 weeks apart is the typical treatment plan for most patients.

STAR treatments are safe for almost all skin types and can be performed on any area of the body where an improvement in the skin firmness, clarity and texture is desired. Popular areas are the face, neck, abdomen and hands. This treatment usually complements the surgeries that we perform to correct eyebags, droopy eyelids and mid face lifting.
